This March, we’re bringing some of the best hard rock and metal that the UK has to offer to the stage of Islington’s O2 Academy. If you don’t like your music loud and heavy, this probably isn’t the show for you!

Joining us all the way from Japan for the show is Esprit D’Air. This trio will be playing their unique brand of space metal, blending electronic elements with hard rock, punishingly thrashy outbursts and broody progressive breakdowns. This sound is gaining Esprit D’Air fantastic reviews in magazines and music blogs from all over the world and huge things seem to be on the horizon for them!

If the Pistols or Blondie are your thing then Bexatron will rock your world! The female fronted London based five piece play hi-octane pop punk with a glam edge, packed full of soaring vocals and screeching guitar riffs!

Led by the captivating vocals and bubbly charisma of Natalie West, INDYA are a group who have featured on Kerrang! Radio and XFM, and have been interviewed by the likes of NME! A heavy dose of glam rock makes this band irresistible!

Having impressed promoters Absent Kelly before, Lightscape are back. Norwich quintet, Lightscape draw influences from range of genres, from Metal to Funk, ultimately creating atmospheric, catchy songs full of huge guitar riffs and captivating vocals.

Opening the show is These Thousand Hills. Joining us from West Sussex for the show, this five piece will be bringing their brand Hard Rock to the stage. With growling vocals and thrashing guitars, this is metal for the masses!
